Ramdin “very disappointed” by TKR transfer, but ready to represent Patriots
Former West Indies wicketkeeper/batsman Denesh Ramdin said he is looking forward to playing with the St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots for the upcoming season of the Caribbean Premier League CPL.
The Trinbago Knight Riders chose to move on from the 35-year-old Trinidadian, who has been part of the CPL since its inauguration in 2013, scoring over a 1000 runs in six seasons.
He has represented Guyana and Trinbago, and for the latter he has 619 runs, making him one of four players to have scored more than 500 runs for TKR in the CPL.
Disappointed to have been released by TKR, Ramdin said he is keen to prove his worth to the Patriots.
“I am happy to join a new team. It’s all about business and nothing else,” he said. “Yes, I was very disappointed but it was beyond my control, its sport. I had lots of fun memories with them on and off the field winning two trophies.”
He believes his skill sets will make his new team even better.
“With my experience playing over the years, and also they could do with a player who can adapt to any situation,” he said.
Ramdin played 12 matches for TKR in 2019, scoring 190 runs with a top score of 50 and a strike rate of 100.5. (Sportsmax)
